Stéphanie de Boüard-Rivoal, Jean-Bernard Grenié and Hubert de Boüard de Laforest
send you their best wishes for the year 2021.
Created at the initiative of Stéphanie de Boüard-Rivoal, Reflet, the first edition of which just released, offers readers the chance to get the latest updates on the wine estate as well as the cultural and leisure activities with which it is connected.
Since the 2014 vintage the bottles of Château Angélus are equipped with a system of authentication, traceability, and anti-counterfeiting through the insertion of a microchip under the label of each of our bottles, readable with the smartphone app WID.
The ancient Greeks named it after its colour –blood red. This imaginary and fascinating animal has existed throughout the eras and across different cultures. It symbolises one of the greatest dreams of humanity: immortality.
2020, the mirror year, is also the golden number of this rare vintage -one of perfect proportion and ideal harmony. It evokes at the same time the cyclical time of the vine and its work, an ideal of balance and that duality, undergone, overcome and sublimated, which characterises it.
After the completion of large-scale renovation work carried out by its new owners, the de Boüard de Laforest family of Château Angélus, Le Gabriel reopened last July 9th.
Angélus takes you through the different stages of the vine cycle via a series of photos of a single Cabernet Franc vine. This series, entitled “A Cabernet Franc Story”, will be sent out on a monthly basis until the end of the year.
A new machine appeared in the Angélus vineyard: SOBLI, the semi-automatic anti-hail balloon launcher made by the French company Selerys. SOBLI was based on LAÏCO which we spoke to you about in spring.
